128 - Block deck face and 40`s jetting

Post by Abarthnorway - Remi L » July 17th, 2013, 11:19 pm

Hi Guy!


Sold on my 127 city car - awaiting a 128 Panorama in red - Bit more family friendly, and not to mention a stronger and sweeter engine to work on:-)

I have started to build an engine to suit the car - fast road spec - nothing fancy at all. All I want is a torquey 1300 with a wide usable power band. I started out with a low milage 128 Sport Coupe block that was dimensionally correct, but after honing reveiled some corrosion in two cylinders - ahhhhh - rebore and oversize pistons. Luckily I have a Ritmo 70 1299cc with 86.4 bore so this was stripped for its pistons, and after careful cleaning they seem ok for reuse.

Dent in block waterway




Now to the questions:


1:
In the last picture You see a dent in the coolant gallery - the gasket firering is very close to the waterway..... my estimate is about 0.5 mm of gasket between the edge of the gallery to the firering...
CR will be approx 9.5:1
Problem???

I will use the black DCOE manifold for Solex 40 carbs.......

2:

Jetting:

1301 block
Flowed head - small 26*27 mm inlet port controlling section, valve + valveseat + deshroud.
Std 36/31 valves.
Approx 9.5:1 compression (Ritmo 1299 (55.4 stroke) 86,4 pistons with higher compression height 0.25 + 1 mm domed - original pistons already protude 0.1 due to block decked previously)
Std cam
Old Supersprint 4-2-1 manifold - runners combined length approx 32" - 32 mm ID primaries.
Solex 40 on DCOE manifold 29 chokes

Would You care to give a suitable jetting for this engine please?


Thank You!


Best regards

Hi Remi

don't worry about that dent!

40 carbs 29mm chokes my suggested jetting:

mains 125
air correctors 210
emulsion tube Solex A04
idle jet 40

Hope this helps
